SunPower Corp. announced that it will remain in San Jose, California, relocating its headquarters to an existing three-building campus next spring to accommodate planned, long-term growth.

Located on Rio Robles, the new headquarters will house the company’s corporate staff that includes finance, communications, product development, and engineering teams.
"We’re pleased to be moving to our new headquarters and continuing our investments here in California thanks to the City of San Jose’s economic incentives and the state’s long-term energy policies," said Tom Werner, SunPower CEO. "This move to a larger campus reinforces our planned growth over the next several years, not just here, but around the globe, as we continue to design, manufacture and deliver the highest efficient solar cells and panels on the market today."
